75 years after closing its doors, The Dawn Club may be making a huge comeback. The jazz speakeasy was a downtown San Francisco institution back in the 1930s until financial hardship forced the club to close in 1947.
But now, there are forces at work that aim to bring The Dawn Club back to life. These forces are none other than Future Bars, a nightlife group known for current-day S.F. haunts such as Bourbon & Branch, The Devil’s Acre, Local Edition, Pagan Idol, Ginger’s and others.
Given their aptitude for creating a themed watering hole with an immersive environment, their revival of The Dawn Club is one we can’t wait to see come to fruition. Future Bars CEO Brian Sheehy has put forth planning applications to construct a brand new awning at The Dawn Club’s original entryway on Annie Street, according to the San Francisco Business Times.
The 4,000-square foot space will surely need to undergo some modern-day renovations, but is likely to resemble The Dawn Club of the past. There will be live jazz performances and a stellar bar service led by Bourbon & Branch’s Jayson Wilde.
An opening is planned for the end of the year, if all goes according to plan.
